Protecting Your Hector Campbell Milwaukie Home From Carpenter Ants

Posted by bmedia on Friday, April 27, 2018


The Hector Campbell Neighborhood in Milwaukee is a lovely community, replete with families, small businesses and schools. Community gardens, neighborhood picnics, and family events make this a charming and snug place to call home. The same can, unfortunately, be said about carpenter ants, a common household pest in the Hector Campbell area.

Although termites get more attention, carpenter ants are far more common in Southeast Portland and Milwaukie. A fully developed nest can do considerable damage to a structure and should be addressed quickly.

Carpenter ants do not actually eat the wood in your home; they excavate galleries in the wood for nesting and laying eggs. They can vary greatly in size depending on the amount of nutrition within the nest.  This means that the smaller ants are actually older than the larger ants, which have benefited from the increasing amount of food in the nest. If you are seeing carpenter ants with wings, this is an indication that the nest has been established for several years and is now reproducing with these winged ants.
